Third World people are intentionally kept poor so that our rich "investors" may become still richer. British journalist JOHANN HARI argues this case, using Haiti as example. MICHAEL PARENTI (early 1990s) concurs, with examples from Haiti and elsewhere. I suggest that the U.S. is now being pushed down the same road as Haiti. And comedians BOB AND RAY offer a comic look at a domestic company that has adopted a Third-World business model: The Great Lakes Paper Clip Company.
